to bring in white house correspondent, and from cnn money. go big or go home. what is the republican push back? >> reporter: we're going to be finding out very shortly because house speaker john boehner will take to the cameras at 1:30 eastern essentially in the rebuttal to the news conference from the president earlier today. but the push back for republicans has been tax increases. you have republicans who have insisted on no tax increases, and democrats that insisted if there will be spending cuts, to achieve trillions of dollars in deficit savings. they don't want to abandon -- if there are going to be cuts to programs that are huge, they want to be able to say we pushed for sacrifices from wealthy americans and corporations. they are trying to strike kind of a just right agreement. because on one hand, you have a lot of republicans, and many of them who were swept into power in the last election saying we're going to cut spending and make government smaller, so the idea of tax increases, and certainly this is something a lot of them literally pledged they will not do, randi, it would

heated yesterday between obama and eric cantor. while they bicker, the big three credit rating agencies are warning the aaa bond status could be at risk. the debt ceiling deadline, as you may know, is august 2nd, but the president set tomorrow for the deadline to see if a grand bargain is possible, if not a bare bones bargain. if not, payments to critters, bill payments, you name it, there is not enough income to cover all that. every month we come up $125 billion short. if we cannot borrow to bridge the cap, 40% of the monthly obligations could not be paid, and that could include social security checks due to go out on august 3rd. the stakes we just laid out are monumental, so both sides have to give ground and risk their jobs for the good of the country. what is so hard about that, right? joining me with their insights on conflict resolution are cnn contributor, pete dominic, and family law attorney, mrs. winestein. what does it take for two entrenched parties to agree on a deal that both need? >> well, you know, the obvious is that you take the emotion out of the room and you try to
